3 Birthday parties -- 1 day

It's been so long since we updated that even though I don't intend on making a long post,, I still think I should write something.

Today we celebrated Noah, Zoe, and Ephram's birthdays. The Bucks, G-ma & pa Buck, G-ma & pa Syswerda, Grates, and Emersons were in attendance-- drinking beverage, eating chips, and devouring and 6 feet of sub.

All three kids opened presents, with the big hit being a trampoline purchased by G-ma & pa Buck and G-ma & pa Syswerda.

After we sang happy birthday (Noah played the mandolin... kinda), the adults sat outside on the patio and talked while the kids played in the sprinkler and screamed. It was a pretty great day.

One update that is very important... Shelly is feeling much better. The cortisone shot really did the trick.  So between the hysterectomy and the nerve pain, Shelly is finally feeling pretty good.  Amen!  This topic deserves much more attention than this, but I'm still wanting to get to bed soon.  I'll make Shelly post a little bit about it too.

Thanks.  We love you all and are so thankful for your prayers.
